With the autumn months soon arriving to the Hoosier state, motorcyclists
are pulling their bikes out for longer road trips, logging the miles across
Indiana’s scenic roadways in hopes for one last motorcycle getaway.
And with data collectors seeing a jump in the amount of motorcycles on
the road again this year, we are reminded that the more bikes on the road,
the more risk of accident and tragic fatalities. The
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reported 4,976 deaths from motorcycle crashes in 2015, up 8.3
percent from 4,594 in 2014.
Patches of rain and cooler pavements mixed with falling leaves and road
debris may contribute to an increase in bike accidents during the fall
season. Because of this, bikers should use extra caution and review road
conditions prior to setting out for a ride. Reviewing these simple bike
rules will help Hoosiers live a long-lasting, accident free motorcycle
riding life no matter what time of year it is.
Even if you follow all of the above safety rules, the careless actions
of another driver can still lead to a devastating motorcycle accident.
